[link]Hosting an ASP.NET MVC Application on Windows Azure

Posted 04 January 2012 - 08:13 AM


A pretty solid explanation I could have used a few months ago instead of a painful learning process!


This walkthrough shows how to deploy an ASP.NET MVC application to Windows Azure by using the Windows Azure Publish wizard in Visual Studio. For a Web Forms version of this walkthrough, see Hosting an ASP.NET Web Forms Application on Windows Azure.

The Windows Azure Publish wizard enables you to perform most deployment tasks within Visual Studio. This includes such tasks as creating a hosted service, creating a storage account, and uploading certificates to enable Remote Desktop access. The wizard also lets you save Publish profiles so that you can reuse wizard settings in future deployments. This simplifies the deployment process for deploying updates in the future.

In this walkthrough you'll perform the following tasks:
  • Create a Windows Azure account.
  • Create an ASP.NET web project to deploy. This will not initially be a Windows Azure solution, since the purpose of this part of the walkthrough is to show how to deploy an existing web project to Windows Azure. Later in this walkthrough you'll see how to create a new web project that's specifically intended for deployment to Windows Azure.
  • Add a Windows Azure deployment project to the web project.
  • Deploy the web project to a new hosted service in the staging environment in your Windows Azure account.
  • Deploy an update by using Web Deploy.
  • Create a SQL Azure database and configure the application to use that database when it runs in the cloud.
  • Promote the application from the staging environment to production.

The final section of the walkthrough shows how to create a new ASP.NET Windows Azure web project using the templates provided in Visual Studio.
